fluxbox+apps file+ windows


yo,

i use the fluxbox apps file to resize and reposition windows on my screen. this works fine apart from certain windows like the firefox 'Save Page As' window, which doesnt fit inside my monitor space, as a result i cant access the options. i want this window to be at {0 0} UPPERLEFT.

ive tried using the 'WM_NAME' variable and options, but it wont work.

could someone that is using firefox do this:

try bringing up the 'File/Save Page As' window, and see if it fits in their monitor space, and if it does, take a look at their apps file and post the result here plz?

well, just thought id update this thread as ive found some answers.

the reason why some windows wont resize is because they are 'transient', speaking to the guys on freenode/#fluxbox, they say support for transient windows is in the current GIT (development version) so use that, or wait untill the next stable release of fluxbox.

untill then a workaround is to manually resize the transient window, by holding down ALT + right mouse button, and drag to resize, and if needed ALT + left mouse button and drag to move the window around the screen.
